My Notes

This iconic brownstone, steps from Central Park, was built in 1891 by Gilbert Schellenger on a storied block, home to financiers Bernard Baruch & partners Samuel Goldman & Marcus Sachs. Visionary American fashion designer Perry Ellis oversaw a meticulous restoration of the original mahogany, cherry and oak details adding floor-to-ceiling French casement windows & Art Deco bathrooms from Londons Savoy Hotel. The current owner commissioned noted American designer, artist & sculptor Ward Bennett to bring the house fully into the 20th century with his serene contemporary American vision.A Garden Entry leads to a Center Hall & spacious Bedroom/Office with full Bathroom, Powder Room & spectacular eat-in Chefs Kitchen with fireplace, center island, walk-in pantry, six-burner professional Garland range, oak millwork, aged white Carrera marble countertops & an elevette/dumbwaiter.

    Market guide

    Zillow predicts Upper West Side home values will rise 1.3% next year, compared to a 2.9% rise for New York as a whole. Among Upper West Side homes, this home is 1274.8% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 74.7% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Upper West Side, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 442.7% greater than in New York, and 29.5% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Upper West Side home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
